Can't get past you saying wale doesn't make "challenging, focused, artistic music". Did you listen to the gifted?
i reviewed it. really bad album and was almost universally panned.

a score of 65 is far from being "panned", just saying
Most of the reviews fall under "mixed" rather than positive.

well sure, and i'm not trying to argue that it's a great album, but "panned" would seem to imply that most of the reviews would be fairly negative.

What was your score for it..I'm trying to remember...a 53%? That would be "panned" in an absolutepunk sense, since scores that low can be hard to come by, but across other formats a 60~ really ain't too bad of a score
I gave it a 50. If an album has an average of 65 I think it's fair to say people don't like the album a lot.


The album is reallllllly bad I'm not sure why we're having this conversation. In two years I bet wale doesn't have a career

really? why do you think that?

I thought Attention Deficit was great but I hated Ambition
his time has all but run out, imo. the gifted was really his last chance to get back on his feet (quality wise) and he dropped the ball. if by some miracle LP number 4 doesn't suck i'll eat my words, but the days of good music from wale are far behind us and its just a matter of time until he fades into obscurity

Jays verse isn't good but you're all overreacting about how it "ruins" the song.

I feel like I am the only one who enjoys Wu Tang Forever the most. That song gets so damn stuck in my head every time.
Probably a top 3 for me. Great track.

watch the throne was huge and there were several songs his verses were better than kanye's
the second half of this statement is debatable.

God damn, 2 staff members... never mind then, I take that back. I hardly see anyone talking about how it stands out. My friends hardly even acknowledged it.
When it first came out I listened to it probably a hundred times in a few days haha.

"Wu Tang Forever" is the best song on this album probably. Definitely best beat in my opinion.
that and the "pound cake" beat are up there. shit, most of these beats are unreal. i think its his best produced album by a long shot.

no offense but it seems like AP.net reviewers REALLY like all music. So that's good I guess.
I've probably given just as many below 7 reviews as I have above. But okayyyyy
